What do these things have in common? They’re all items from real grocery lists. Whose lists? Who knows. The lists were found discarded in shopping carts, dropped on supermarket floors and parking lots, even tucked in returned library books. But the fact that they were discarded is not what’s interesting about them. It’s that they were found – found and/or collected by Bill Keaggy, proprietor of Grocerylists.org and the author of the world’s first compilation of lost grocery lists. This book.
If we are what we eat, then this book reveals deep and strange truths about the average food shopper (not to mention more mundane facts like a lot of people love vodka, banana is actually very difficult to spell and that butter used to be dyed yellow using marigolds).
Separated into chapters – funny lists, sad lists, unhealthy lists, organized lists – the book also includes humorous commentary by the author and some delicious recipes created from found grocery lists. Quirky sidebars and odd food facts round out the menu.
*Translation: Cabbage, bird food, noodles, buttermilk, dog yogurt (duh), bananas, shampoo, cream of celery soup.

From the Inside Flap
FROM THE AUTHOR
“These found grocery lists are rare specimens. I have a collection from around the world that numbers in the thousands, but it has taken years of hunting and gathering. People are very protective of their grocery lists. I call it selective littering. Seems most folks would sooner dump their car ashtray in the grocery’s parking lot or toss a week’s worth of soda cans and fast food bags on the ground outside the store (and they do) rather than leave their list in a shopping card. It’s because grocery lists are supposed to be private. Never mind that all of us have to go through the checkout in public. Our lists are supposed to be private, and that’s why it’s so enjoyable to look through them — unless one of the lists happen to be yours.”
